6 Reasons to go to Ojai this Weekend
If you live in Los Angeles and haven't spent a weekend soaking up some #ojaivibes yet, you're really missing out. Here are six reasons to put Ojai at the top of your getaway list.
1. It’s So Close
Ojai is only 90 minutes from DTLA, and just over an hour from the Valley without traffic*. Even the scenic route is only two hours, not to mention the perfect way to show out of towners prime PCH beach views.
*Obviously we live in the real world, so plan accordingly.
2. It’s So Cheap
You can find cute, comfy AirBnb’s in Ojai starting at $75/night. Here’s one of our faves. If you want the full desert chic experience, check out the Ojai Rancho Inn ($140-$250/night depending on season), and for a more retro cool vibe, try the Capri Hotel ($160-$300/night depending on season). For real budget friendly relaxation, call Ojai Pizza Co and have them deliver poolside at the Rancho.
3. It’s the Right Mix of Kitsch and Chic
Bike into town along the Ojai Valley Trail and window shop for magic crystals, handmade pottery and palo santo scented everything. For some serious #desertvibes, check out Shop Summercamp on the western end of town.
4. The Views, Yo
Ojai is Instagram gold from top to bottom. If the drive into town doesn’t stop you dead in your tracks, the way home will. Find a vantage point somewhere high up for the famous “pink moment”, a sliver of time where the Topa Topa mountains surrounding the valley turn coral and rose in the sunset light.
It’s the Perfect Way Home (or Way Out) Stop
